Wow, reading posts like yours, I'm reminded of that familiar refrain: "Hope I die before I get old"

Obviously it's too late for you.

everything both of you say is correct, however I am very cynical of the human race, plus I'm an asshole, an asshole with a heart...I understand the romantic notion of how everyone on the planet deserves to live free of tyranny, etc. if a trio of beetheads want to make a statement about essentially getting rid of Putin, then fine, the world will now see how Russia handles this, what we in the US take for granted, is a very different world overseas...the consequences will be severe, they need to call in the heavy artillery, I.e.Bono...maybe he has a pair of super shades he can give to Putin to make him see the light...

I hear you. I think/hope they understood what they were getting into. Everyone knows that the Russian state doesn't fuck around. On the other hand, this little "stunt" has gotten TONS more press coverage and international attention than similar attacks on Russian human rights groups and dissidents. Perhaps they're on to something.
